Take Action: Top 10 MIPS Reporting Tips
- Get Familiar with the new data submission system.
- Get Your Data Ready for the Quality, Improvement Activities, & Advancing Care Information categories.
- Get Your EIDM Credentials Ready, or get an EIDM account if you don’t have one (see next article for more information).
- Sign-In to the QPP data submission system using your EIDM account.
- Start Submitting your data early to familiarize yourself with the system & prepare your data.
- Know Your Group: ECs can report as a group or individually & can switch at anytime. For ECs reporting as a group, the data submission system will recognize your NPI & tie it to other EC’s sharing a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN).
- Know Your Data: The system saves all data entered for individual ECs and the group. CMS will use data with the highest final score to calculate an individual EC’s payment adjustment.
- Resolve Performance Issues by submitting/updating data right up to the March 31 deadline. The system doesn’t have a “save” or “submit” button, but will automatically update as data is entered. Once CMS receives your data, initial scores will be displayed by performance category.
- Submit as Often as You Like: Use the data submission system to identify any under-performing measures & issues with your data.
